    Young, explosive, interesting. Would be without the latent bitterness probably something wholesome, some more years in the barrel would not have harmed the organic sales argument of this no-age. And there I come once again to me strange-looking suggestions in the specialized trade: a prominent dealer extols this drop in his description actually (fair, I must say: too) so that on the tin Brighde, the Gaelic goddess of fertility, the Harvest and the home will be shown and this goddess is the powerful soul of the country and the "mother of the islands" and embody the whole life force of the Hebrides ... Help, that's just nonsense with sauce, whereas only a strong sip Biowhisky remedy can!
    • Nose
      Crispy cereals, pronounced citrus peel, mint, honey. Young but pleasantly aromatic, fresh and fruity.
    • Taste
      In addition, strawberry, possibly not fully ripe kiwi. The bitterness does not increase in intensity.
    • Finish
      The bitterness becomes even more pronounced, in addition to grapes. And now some vanilla in the background.

    Reward to eccentricity for this puzzling malt. Spectacular or completely flawed? Up to you to make your mind. An experience that deserves to be lived anyway, if not buying a whole bottle of it. Tasted blind for whisky-distilleries.info WDTS: http://www.whisky-distilleries.info/WhiskyWDTS/index_EN.shtml
    • Nose
      A queer mixture between the softness of a slice of gingerbread, the tangy side of a kumquat, the fresness of orchard fruits (there's lots of apple juice in there), the damp grass in a field where cows have been staying for a little while (if you see what I mean...), and the increasing domination of a full plate of ham and cheese macaronis. Something like a waxed paper that would have wrapped a cheese Panini (sorry... no ads...). Really strange. When coming back to it a little later, these feinty notes are even more prevailing: My nostrils are full of "Laughing Cow" (or is it some old Salers?), mixed with some apple juice and mashed bananas. Pretty nonconformist, really.
    • Taste
      Hey, but that's not bad at all... The cheesy aromas are quite absent now. The Bourbon cask has done the job. The fruit is soft and clean. Reminds me of an "apple croustade" (a kind of puff apple pie we have down here in Southern France). The mouth is oily, waxy, delicately lemony. Develops on a hint of liquorice, and gets woodier, with a little spiciness (nutmeg?), and a slight bitterness like in a good Tequila anejo. More ooomph than the low ABV could let think.
    • Finish
      Short, but tasty and flawless.

    Place: at home. Great gift was this bottle.
    • Nose
      First, the bourbon casks come out, together with some vanilla notes. A bit deeper in the nose are definite fruit notes like stewed apples. A bit further still are melon and possibly a tickle of lavender.
    • Taste
      There is definite oak at first, with some nutmeg and waxy notes. Relatively soon you can again taste the bourbon-vanilla and a bit of chocolate. The fruit from the nose is less in the taste, except from a hint of dried raisins and the stewed apples.
    • Finish
      Oaky, with some grassy barley notes; relatively long.

    It costs around 35
    EUR, but for that price you can also buy the Laddie Ten. My choice was easy.
    Thanks for the sample nonetheless, Jan!
    • Nose
      The nose is sweet on
      white and red fruit (apples, pears, strawberries and raspberries) but
      predominantly grainy. Young
      animal indeed. Carton, even. Not
      totally unpleasant, but rather thin.
    • Taste
      Slightly creamy on
      the palate, but still a bit boring. The fruit is immediately killed by a very
      bitter taste. Again carton. Oh, oh,
      this is a goner. It starts to
      resemble a <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />geneva
      the longer you taste it. Surely, that is not meant to be?
    • Finish
      The finish may be sweet
      and spicy, it remains to bitter to be called a beauty.

  7. granella2003 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Sweet aromas of grain, hay and with notes of citrus and a variety of fruit with apples as the most prominent
    • Taste
      Sublime creamy taste of buttered toast and orange marmalade and barley are accompanied with delicious fruity notes. In the background is the oak is present and a slight tone of malt.
    • Finish
       A constructive and powerful finish

    A fully organic Bruichladdich, by some described as the world`s most creamy Whisky. If all organic Whisky would taste so it can still be a very popular segment, sublime palate with sweet aromas that continue to surprise the taste buds with every sip!

  9. Igor scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    I had high hopes for this one. Can not really say I'm impressed by the organic stuff now. Sadly it gets only an average mark from me. It's okay in general, but nothing more than that however.
    • Nose
      Raspberries, strawberries, dessert wine, tropical fruit, marmalade.That's all right, all the same, lacking vitality a little.
    • Taste
      Oily structure, buttery greasiness almost. Bitter lemon, lemon peels, peppery (white pepper), dried squid, hints of smoked fish.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Citrus nip, spice, dusty peat, charcoal, diminishing tea brew moves away.

  10. mmaclean did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    "The second edition of Bruichladdich`s single malt whisky made with

    organically-grown Scottish barley - in this case from the Mid Coul,

    Coulmore and mains of Tullibardine farms. As with all of

    Bruichladdich`s malts, this has been neither coloured nor

    unchilfiltered. More unusually for this distillery, it hasn`t been

    wine-finished either."
